August 11-19, Congressional Staff Trip to Shanghai, Xian, and Beijing

The U.S.-China Policy Foundation successfully concluded its annual Congressional staff trip to China. This year’s roster included both Democratic and Republican staffers from the House of Representatives and the Senate. Hosted by the Center for International Culture Exchange Center (CICEC), the tour provided opportunities for staffers to meet and have discussions with Chinese representatives from governmental and academic institutions as well as ex-patriot U.S. corporate executives in China’s two largest cities. In Beijing, arrangements were made to visit the U.S. Embassy, Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MOFA), American Chamber of Commerce, Ministry of Foreign Trade and Economic Cooperation (MOFTEC), Institute of American Studies at the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences (CASS), and National People’s Congress (NPC). In Shanghai, the group visited the Shanghai Municipal People’s Congress, and the Center for American Studies at Fudan University. In addition, the group enjoyed sightseeing at several sites of historical and contemporary significance, including the Great Wall and Forbidden City in Beijing, the Terra-Cotta Warriors in Xian, and the GM joint-venture plant and stock exchange in Shanghai.
